arizona and the federal government related to immigration issues. over the summer, the supreme court upheld part of a top state law that allowed police to check for immigration papers. other states, including alabama, georgia, kansas and tennessee, have similar laws on the books and a number of other states are also considering comparable measures. the obama administration supports the challenge to the arizona law. and today's arguments on the heels of another case that could roll back a key portion of the voting rights act of 1965. for more on today's arguments, we turn as always to marcia coyle of the "national law journal." she was in the courtroom this morning, and is back with us tonight. so the outcome, marcia, of this could actually tip the federal-state balance on who gets to govern how we vote. >> that's true, gwen. the question before the justices is where do you draw the line between who has the authority to regulate elections. the election clause of the constitution actually gives authority to both. but where is the line when one crosses or goes too far than the other doe
on the pump. we also realize between the state and federal government a lot of us are paying 40-plus cents a gallon to build the road that we're wearing out with the gas we put in. that's a user's fee. when i came here and break this down and asked the question, of tax/user rth of gas fee, 18.3 cents a gallon, $1 of that, how much of that actually goes into roads and bridges? and i'll tell you it adds up like this -- then we reduce it a little bit on this number. three cents out of that dollar went for trails for bike trails, snowmobile trails and that sort of thing. 3%. there was a one time $16 million in one of our appropriation bills to do -- to clean graffiti off of the walls, retaining walls in new jersey. and i thought, can't they get their prisoners out there with a wire brush to do that? and 28% going for environmental arciological -- interest, looking for arrowheads and endangered species. can't somebody pay for that rather than the people driving on the roads? when you add davis-bacon to that, another 20%, 22%, so you have 3% for trails, you have 28% for our achepologicl and env
control over a fractious government? or is it all those things? this is not a discussion rooted in the past. we will not relive the wmd questions. we will not dwell on the mistakes of the coalition authority, and we will not debate the surge. we will look at iraq today and where it is headed. a has been little of that in the 10 years media coverage, even though it is a far more relevant question for policy makers and the public today. with that, because you did not come here to hear me today, that we introduce the plan all. all on the who they are.-- know who they are. you know their contributions to the efforts to stabilize iraq. to my right is ambassador ryan crocker, who is the kissinger senior fellow at the el sity. sal.-- yale univer he has served recently as our ambassador to afghanistan, his long career included ambassadors for iraq as well as our ambassador to pakistan, syria, kuwait, and lebanon. from may to august of 2003, he served as the government's director for the coalition provisional authority in baghdad, and his career in the foreign service included a tour in
do hussein was removed, for sure. at the government level, the strategic agreement is still in place, but it would not be wrong to say that the government of see at the moment does not the american presence or influence as an integral part of its political calculation. it was a few years ago when political decisions were taken. they always factored in what the americans fought and that was certainly true. you probably remember when your the ambassador to baghdad. i do not think that is the situation now. i would even ventured to say that there is more wait for what the iranian regime things about political decisions in iraq, whether it is forming a cabinet any other major political decision. thathat does not mean americans have lost all possible influence. i think americans still have a considerable amount of soft power. i think they should use it not only with the government, and they are actually using it, to be fair, in support of civil society. i think in supporting the segment of population who are secular in their outlook, who believe that the separation of religion from the st
be established. there's also a new coalition government in israel, one that remains fractured when it comes to the establishment of a palestinian state. it is no secret that prime minister benjamin netanyahu and president barack obama have not always seen eye-to-eye on the best road to peace and that's just the beginning for president obama on this historic trip. he has to deal with nuclear threats from iran and provide a road map for how far the united states will go in defense of israel. we will get insights to all of these challenges for president obama with the former ambassador to israel, martin indyk who joins us from washington where he is the vice president and director for foreign policy at the brookings institution. ambassador indyk, good to have you back on the program, sir. >> thanks, tavis, good to be with you. tavis: i guess the start is whether or not i have overstated the case. there are some who believe as i intimated a moment ago that the president's very presence in israel that's to say, our president, barac
consultations, building on what we've already discussed, as bb has just formed a new government as i am entering my second term, that you know, we continue to have close consultation around some of the shared interests that we've already discussed. iran being, obviously, a prominent shared concern. i want to make sure that the israel people and israeli government make sure how i'm approaching problem. and i want to make sure how the israeli government and prime minister is approaching these problems to make sure there are no misunderstandings there. with respect to the peace process as i've said, i'll have more to say about this tomorrow. but i think you're absolutely right over the last year, year and a half, two years, two and a half years, we haven't gone forward. we haven't seen the progress that we would like to see. there's some elements of good news. i mean, the fact of the matter is even with all that's been happening in the region, the palestinian authority has worked effectively in cooperation with the international community in part because of some of the training that we, the united
on the cost of government and government run pension, unionized government workforce and bobby jindal with school choice. he is planning to abolish the corporate individual income tax moving in a very different direction the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. there is a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign in the senate races in the success of the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: we are taking your calls with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. our farmland or open democrats (202)585-3880 and republicans (202)585-3881. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and pa
in cyprus in the government are trying to work it so the rich have to pay more, so it's, you know, maybe maybe then the percentage will go down on those under 100,000 and up on those who have more than 100,000 in the bank. what kind of precedence does it set for those with the rights to their own money. lou dobbs from the fox business network. >> it's not like that taxpayers voted for it. they're stealing it, taking it out of their private savings accounts. >> that's right. and makes everybody glad they're in america. because this is a country, what is happening here, is that they're being run over by their corrupt banks, they're being run over by their corrupt government and they're be run over by an exceedingly authortainer european union that was supposed to be the reverse of this. they were supposed to bring all of those nations together, the euro zone, the european union and everybody lives happily ever after. they're behaving in this crisis in such an authortainer manner that it is disgusting. and by the way, the euro itself may be challenged in this. i want to say quickly one thin
, and government accountants now list climate change as a threat to our fiscal stability. now, today, as we enter the passover and easter season and as catholics the world over celebrate the selection of a new pope, we turn to voices of faith. they, too, call upon us. they call upon us to heed the moral imperatives of protecting creation and seeking justice for all people. they call upon us to reflect on our faith, on our relationship to our world and each other and on our responsibility to future generations. and they call upon us as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address to preserve our planet commanded to our care by god. i lay no claim to religious authority, but i must believe this -- something that harms others, something that disturbs god's creation, something that stands on lies and greed, protecting that must not be consistent with god's will. in his 2010 world day of peace message entitled "if you want to cultivate peace, protect creation," pope benedict xvi called upon the faithful, and i quote -- "to protect the environment and to safeguard natural resources and the clim
government would be with peace toward the palestinians. let me be clear -- israel remains fully committed to peace and to the solution of a .wo state for two peoples we extend our hands in peace and friendship to the palestinian people. i hope that your visit him along with the visit of the secretary of state kerry help us turn a page in relations with the palestinians. let us sit down at the negotiating table. let us work together to achieve the historic compromise that will end our conflict once and for all. let me conclude on a personal note. i know how valuable the time and energy is of the american president, yourself. this is the 10th time we have met since you became president and since i became prime minister. you have chosen israel is your fort and then you -- venue your foreign visit and your second term. thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening that friendship and alliance between our two countries. it is deeply appreciated. you have come here on the eve of passover. i've always considered it it as our most cherished holiday. it celebr
at this in a small section of society. what is the south korean government going to do about it? >> reporter: yeah, i think you're right. south korea is one of the most connected countries in the world. north korea one of the least connected at presence very minimal on the internet, but the upper echelons even have access to the internet. but they have illustrated they have put a lot of effort, training, resources into getting the best and brightest in north korea trained up on cyber warfare tactics. they're very prevalent on the inside in attacking particularly south korean institutions, they've done it on a number of occasions. south korea has been trying to address that. they've got their own training college to sort of sort of train cyber warriors. they also have a special committee they formed just today to tackle this crisis whether they're going to identify the threat they say and implement the kind of countermeasures they say they need to prevent this from ever happening again. >> matthew chance, thank you so much from seoul, south korea. >>> well, tensions rising over the civil war in syria.
with hank greenberg and the a.i.g. story and why he is suing the government on behalf of the stockholders after the government bailed out a.i.g. and paid back the money with interest. >> the fact had to come out what really happened. the so-called accounting scandal turned out toe virally nothing. the corporate governance of the united states changed after enron. boards became more critical of almost anything that everybody was doing but i wanted -- more importantly i wanted the 92,000 people that helped build a.i.g. and all the things they did to make it the greatest insurance company in history. that story had to be told on their behalf as well. >> rose: a president's visit and the story of hank greenberg when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: president obama will travel to the mile east this week. it will be his first time visiting since he entered the white house four years ago. he will meet newly reelected prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem on wednesday. the president has often been c
the proposals before the end of the week -- i'm sorry, before they left town. they want to keep the government running through september 30. the leadership had anticipated this because there was a dispute. so here we are friday night and the budget is not done. >> how much support is the budget is allusion expected to get? resolution -- it only needs 51 votes. as of this morning, there were four power up or be election in 2014 in that mr. romney one in 2014. -- wion in 2014. they have not yet said whether or not they would vote for that budget. it might be a nailbiter. >> the house passed its budget blueprint. what is the next that in both chambers? >> each chamber will pass a budget. harry reid was added as conference. there'll be effort to try to reach a budget resolution. said something like, what is a point of trying? we are so far apart. the two proposals are vastly different. , in theif anything absence of a presidential budget on capitol hill that the senate democrats and house republicans will use this opportunity to lay out their long-term vision for what the budget should look la ike
. the egyptian government has been trying to get the imf to give them the loan on easier budgetary terms than what was originally agreed. shouldt think the u.s. strong arm the imf to do that. i think the egyptian government should make the right terms. the imf -- this is not a tough, austerity program they are trying to enforce on the egyptian government. the u.s. needs to play this the right way. we do not want a crisis in egypt. we want to encourage sound decisions economically and the building of a political consensus. in order to make sound decisions morsi will need to take to get the imf money, he will have to have a broader political consensus. last word -- assuming we get through this crisis and there is an imf agreement and some of movement toward elementary elections in which there is broad participation, the u.s. should take that opportunity to help egypt much more economically. by becoming an aggregator of international assistance and investment and so forth for egypt. the u.s. could easily play this kind of leadership role. that would also give us more leverage over egypt and enco

be exaggerating slightly. but in all seriousness that the challenges of the government, which will are always going to exist. they seem to be more difficult than they were a decade ago. i am wondering if you can talk about what changed and what can reverse those trends. >> had is my story and i'm sticking to it, that things were perfect. partly, we were dealt with a series of crisis and we had an impeachment crisis, we had the 9/11 attack, we an anthrax attack in my office. when you have crisis like that it brings people together. partly it was the environment and the sicks that we had to confront -- circumstances that we had to cold front. as nk what has changed is she said we would work longer weeks and people were there for longer periods of time. the venues for communication were at hand. she will remember this well. we used to have two lunch tables that were just for senators and you sit family style. people would have lunch together. for whatever reason that lunchroom was closed. we used to have social events where we getting together and one was around our spouses and we would salute
to have been shuttling military personnel and equipment to the syrian government over the air space of iraq which is, of course, supporting that horrible civil war in syria and that is something iran and iraq have both denied. good morning, everyone. welcome. >> great to have you here. last year, the iraqi government promised former secretary of state hillary clinton to inspect all of iranian flights so far that's reportedly not happening. now secretary kerry's turn to get it done. >> good morning. wink, wink, nudge, nhung from the iraqis to the iranians. the revolutionary guard soldiers to head from iran into syria to help assad. the united states has only pressured the iraqis privilege atly up until now. the fact they are doing so publicly and sharing intelligence means the shaming of iraq now begins. fox news was the first organization to report on the freight. the combination of everything from syrian airliners to shankar go planes. eye rain wran cargo planes, supply anything that syria needs. money, weapons and ammunition, soldiers. all those kinds of things from tehran into va
place, leading to huge securityish a us in egypt next door. egypt has a government. not entirely functioning government but it hasn't cancelled the historic peace treaty with israel. but security situation in egypt is collapsing all around it and that is the real fear, if they have total collapse. al qaeda elements increasingly large roles in the opposition. and a real issue of authority next door in syria, post assad. >> martin, let's talk about the other major issue here that is certainly on the agenda there. president perez said today after his meeting, that israel trusts the u.s. policy to prevept iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. not just to contain, but to prevent. do you foresee, martin, any change from the administration towards iran either in action or tone? >> i would imagine that the administration does not want any change for the time being. and i would just like to add to your introduction. i'm not sure it is true to say israel trust the united states completely. they need to say that they do and they need to believe the united states because they are still -- th
with the israeli government? >> you know, i think as much as anything, he's trying to slightly reset them with the general israeli public. one realizes that netanyahu knows what the deal is. they've met ten times? that's far more than he's met with putin, far more than the leaders with china and ironically more than some particular congressional leaders. but reputations and images, as you know, good and bad, are hard to lose. and here's a situation in which the image among both conservatives in this country and among the israeli public fly in the face of what are the facts. never in history on many levels, intelligence sharing, military aid, security information being shared has a relationship been any stronger than it is today and a little bit of news if you're listening to that press conference was that this significant military aid package that we have with israel that we give israel, looks like it's going to be extended by another ten years as of the year 2017. now, that doesn't sound like mortal enemies at work. and when you look at what played out today and it wasn't just the joking

. but in all seriousness let's agree that the challenges in government that will always exist seem to be more difficult to surmount today than they were a decade ago and i'm wondering if you can talk about what has change add whand can reverse those trend. >> that is my story and i'm sticking to it that things were perfect. there were a lot of things. we dealt with a series of crisis. we had an impeachment crisis. we had a 9/11 crisis. we had an an thrax attack in my office. when you have crisis like that it brings people together. i think partly it was the circumstances and the environment we had to confront. devissive had very times. the schedule has changed a lot. we would work longer weeks and people were there for a longer period of time. the venues for communication were much more readily at hand. we had -- we used to have two lunch tables that are just for senators and you'd is it family style and people would have lunch together. and for whatever reason that lunchroom was closed. we used to have social events where we get together and one was around our spouses and we'd salute or spo

works towards a nuclear weapon. and as we try to determine whether the government of syria has already deployed chemical weapons against its own people. because, in the words of our president, that would be a game changer. >> we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened, what was the nature of the incident, that what can we document? what can we prove. i have instructed my teams to work closely with all of the countries in the region and international organizations and institutions. to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. >> shepard: talk of syria dominated much of the president's news conference in jerusalem this afternoon. he spoke alongside benjamin netanyahu. just a day after both the syrian regime and the syrian rebels accused each other of deploying chemical weapons. now, so far u.s. officials say they have no evidence that those accusations are true on either side. but president obama says he is deeply skeptical that of any claim that the opposition rebels used chemical weapons at all. he did not say the same of the syrian regime. we have team
the budget because the only way you really can make an impact on government is by understanding the budget. and for this president to be in office for five years, not be able to get a budget done on time, really tells us that he has no interest in our economy, he has no real interest in straightening out our budget problems. i don't know what his priorities are, but they certainly aren't straightening out the tremendous debt that we've accumulated under his presidency. >> greta: and the senate should note that other presidents should know that other presidents have been late, but this is the first time the president didn't get the budget before the house and senate and we waited and supposed to get it early april, but maybe. mayor, listen to this the national debt we all owe stands at more than 16 trillion dollars, so are president obama and speaker of the house, john boehner, both in denial or are they drinking the same stuff? >> i think it's important to recognize is that we've already cut 2.5, 2.7 trillion dollars out of the deficit. if the sequester stays in you've got over 3 1/2 trill
, a new report for the government. and absolutely slams freddy mack. why? >> troubling reports concerning freddie mac, inspector general of the federal housing finance agency, saying they aren't doing such a good job of working out complaints from homeowners. they found that freddie's eight biggest servicers resolved more than 25,000 complaints. that sounds great, but they failed to take care of more than 20% of them in the required 30-day window. that's even after they moved the case up the chain of command. a huge problem, when it comes to serious complaints like servicing fraud and improper foreclosures, what it means, people could potentially lose their homes while these services are twiddling their thumbs on cases. the report it found that four of freddie servicers never reported any cases in this period, even though they handled more than 20,000 of them, so this watchdog agency put out recommendations. we'll see if those recommendations go anywhere. carol. >> alison kosik live from the new york stock exchange. >>> a little politics/entertainment. a fresh dose of sarah palin when she
a high public opinion approval rating in israel will make the prime minister and the israely government more carol abo-- mor about standing up to him. >> i want to continue this idea that they will not be able to discuss anything. am i dreaming, aren't they going to talk about the iran threat and syria and the massive problems there and egypt. the region in some sense is unraveling, dan, president obama knows that. prime minister netanyahu knows that. cou so, can they get manage out of this? >> there's a lot to talk b but a lot of it is relationship repair. the first term the president, to borrow his phrase, he pursued a strategy in the middle east in which he wanted distance. he said that his u.s. relationship was perceived to close to the prime minister of israel. and so they needed to create space. here he is four years later, nothing to show for it, there's trust issues between the president and the palestinian leaders, so he is trying something different. coming to israel. bear hugging them and sending a message that they are close. as it relates to specifics, absolutely they will
the attitudes of -- >> you know what, the preachers, the rabbis, the government, the people who care about abortion rights, they got out of the pulpit this weekend and started issuing statements, try to avoid unprotected sex. you know what i mean? anyway, michael steele, stephanie, thank you. >>> up next, the return of sarah palin means one thing, the return of tina fey and her fantastic impression. >> i address you as governor, you served only half a term so what's the right term to address? >> well, i tell ya, i don't know. i'm a half governor or you could call me a maverick at large.

that you have to remember that the prime minister of israel just formed a very fragile coalition government, and so the president, it's very shaky ground in israel, as well, in terms of his approval among israeli jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria. we want to go to our senior international correspondent ivan watson in amman, jordan, this morning. and iv
accusations have been made by former senators took part, the government itself took part in the 9/11 conspiracy and number two, they have the highest recidivism level of former gitmo detainees in the world. and those that return to saudi arabia become jihadists. why are we allowing the saudis to vet saudi applicants and jump to the head of the lines without going through customs and border patrol in the united states, is absolutely disturbing and bizarre and i think congress ought to hold hearings about this. >> we also do vetting. there's an issue about the saudi screening since our congressional research service describes them as a problematic ally in combatting islamic extremism and as you point out former florida senator bob graham, was co-chair with congressional inquiry coming out, i'm convinced there's a direct line between some of the 9/11 terrorists and the government of saudi arabia, we don't have that much faith in their screening when they tell us, this person can be fast-tracked and skip the line. we do our own screening here before we give them the special access pas
